Beneficiary Designation Gifts
A retirement plan gift can be a tax-efficient and simple way of including Stetson in your estate plan.
It's not only possible; it's easy to do with a beneficiary designation. Simply name Stetson University as a beneficiary to receive assets from your retirement accounts or life insurance policy after you're gone. All you have to do is fill out a form from your provider—it's easier than you might think.
- Talk to your financial advisor to learn which assets will or will not trigger taxable income when paid to a beneficiary.
- If you name Stetson in your plans, please use our legal name and Federal Tax ID.

IRA Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD)
For 2023, Congress raised the age at which Required Mandatory Distributions must be taken. If you are 73 or older, you must take your RMD by December 31 to avoid the 50% penalty—unless this is your first RMD, in which case you have until April 1, 2024.
- Rather than take your RMD, transfer the same amount to Stetson
- Satisfy your annual RMD requirements with this transfer
- Pay no income tax on the transfer
